My work investigates texture, abstraction, geometric forms and plays on the idea of formal relationships between random "˜things' and pattern. I like to work over areas of paint and remove layers to reveal new and interesting situations, I will then try to establish forms from the many layers of paint I applied in the hope of discovering unique areas that can then be formalized into a shape or defined area. Working with the forms I will then try to construct a pictorial space. The positioning and set up of the picture suggests curiosity toward balance and dialog between forms. Things may appear to look like they could be real life objects that been slightly abstracted. The result of my method leaves me with peculiar forms and shapes that sometimes look strangely familiar and could maybe allude to something else. Before I start the canvas or linen I take inspiration from retro design, architecture, images in magazines, patterns on train seats, old worn posters etc etc, however on the journey through the making of the painting I like things to occur naturally and organically. In a way I see my method of making art like archaeology, I am constantly removing paint to try to uncover the interesting and unique areas that can then be used to build a picture. Discovering patterns and forms that have been hidden under layers of paint over time is very important to the process of inventing and making seductive surfaces and forms that have an ambiguous feel to them. I approach the making of art very openly and do not restrict myself by trying to focusing too much on an idea; my work is not conceptual so thinking too much about the concept of an idea holds me back. The idea is simply about the process/possess of making of art.
